MOD Plod use them. Every other force use a Colt or HK derivative.

So, if attacking an establishment guarded by PLoD, wear a wet '68 pattern combat jacket with button on hood and you'll be grand

SA80 is not capable of nuke delivery. They would need THAT rifle for that.

Really? I'd been led to believe that the use of THAT military antique would render a nuke superfluous, sort of like watching a mouse rape an elephant.

Now you're being just silly. You'd need the SLR with the Inerga fitting

Yes, they're squaddies walting as plod. Next week they'll be used to break up a strike involving miners.
